360 degree feedback tells them whether the applicant's skills and personality fit the employer's needs. The fact that they use MY360 Degree Feedback says they're open to receiving feedback, and committed to keep growing.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
Job-seekers struggling with record high unemployment can now increase their chances of being recruited, by providing employers with a revealing 360 degree feedback report.
A new offering called MY360 Degree Feedback lets them order a 360 report that will attract recruiters' attention to their application.
Recruiters say MY360 may start a revolution in hiring.
Attracts Attention To The Resume
"A 360 degree feedback report makes the job application stand out for busy recruiters, and gives it more credibility," said Timothy Bentley of MY360, which is pioneering the provision of feedback directly to job-seekers. (360s are usually available only through organizations.)
"Recruiters tell us they're cynical about resumes alone, because they include only the information the applicant wants them to read. They find the additional data provided by feedback from all 360 degrees around the applicant makes their work more accurate," he said.
Feedback reports provide a more complete view of the applicant's skills, helping them select the best applications from the hundreds they receive, and with greater efficiency.
"There's a big added benefit for recruiters." Bentley said. "360 degree feedback tells them whether the applicant's skills and personality fit the employer's needs. The fact that they use MY360 Degree Feedback says they're open to receiving feedback, and committed to keep growing."
Low Cost, Simple To Use
MY360 allows job-seekers to invite feedback from as many people as they want (generally from 6 to 16).
The MY360 Essentials package is priced affordably at US $99. The $129 Guidance option also provides a guide to self-development based on the feedback. The $359 Premium option includes an hour of professional coaching by telephone, focused on the report.
Getting started takes only a few minutes. Users enter the email addresses of responders at MY360 Degree Feedback. Within a day, their colleagues receive invitations to respond (and reminders if they delay).
The online questionnaire asks professionally-designed questions about the abilities of the applicant. It takes about 15 minutes to complete.
A week later, the applicant receives the same quality of 360 report that corporations provide to their employees. It provides responses verbatim, but protects confidentiality by not revealing who said what.
The report is in PDF format, ideal for forwarding to recruiters.
